Article | Qorvo

The future of the Internets of Things (IoT) will expand the use of cellular communications beyond smartphones and tablets to an extraordinary range of applications and connected devices. Two new standards, NB-IoT and LTE-M, have potential uses and some implementation options for device makers looking to add cellular connectivity.

Introduction To Waveguide Connectors And Uni-Guide
Application Note | SAGE Millimeter, Inc.

The waveguide, along with the coaxial line, is one of the most important transmission media in any modern RF, microwave and millimeter-wave component, subassembly, and system. Due to its metal tubing configuration, the waveguide tends to be heavy and bulky, especially in low microwave frequencies. However, it is always a preferred transmission means when performance and high power are priorities.
